One of the top fashion trends right now is the slim boyfriend jean. Cut to be comfortable but not absurdly baggy, they show off the feminine figure yet provide ease of wear…a great uniform pant that can be worn über casually chic or upgraded to a sexy on-the-go look. You can get them in just about any wash from super-distressed to clean and dark. One of the best features to us shoe obsessed belles is the cuffed or rolled leg that shows off your fashion forward footwear of the moment.
Frankly what’s not to like y’all? Well, nothing…except that you might want to invest in a pair and a spare! Because, dear belles, these babies will become such an important staple in your wardrobe that you will want to wear them every day! With two, one can be in the wash and the other on your ever-so-grateful body. (as much as we still love our skinnies, it sure is nice to breathe a little…)
So, following our own sound advice, we have purchased two great pair and are linking them below for your perusal. But you better be quick and pull the trigger before they are all gone. We don’t want you to miss the boat .
First up is a new brand to us that we found at our local boutique of choice, Savvy. What belle isn’t savvy inside and out right?!?! Savvy has a website, so you can purchase them here. Made by Mia and Moss, the style is Bennett.
Not only is this boyfriend a great price point ($99.00 !! Holla!!), they are super-stylish with just a hint of edge. The bit of pin-striping makes them fun while remaining neutral enough to wear with anything. Bonus…pocket placement is most flattering, belles. We suggest sizing down for the perfect skinny boyfriend fit as they will relax quite a bit.
Next up…a great pair from Anthropologie. These are the “relaxed knee” Hyphens from Pilcro and the Letterpress. Boy, oh, boyfriend are they awesome! Size-down a bit this time, too, belles, as these will relax with wear. Get them here
And another bonus…the Cloth and Stone shirt is from Anthropologie as well! Get it here
Now for the shoes…the options are almost endless!! In the photo above, is an open-toe bootie that won’t break the bank! We found these by Michael Shannon at our local Off Broadway for just around $70. For some online options, we thought these or these would do just the trick. Both are from Nordstrom .
Sole Society Mandee
Steve Madden Nonstop
We thought we’d go ahead and show y’all a few more cute options to wear with the boyfriends – to further prove that these are the jeans to have in your repertoire. But first, as a little side story, let us share with you what happens when you don’t pay attention to the four-legged belles. (In particular, the naughty baby one!)
We can thank our lucky stars that we caught her in the act before she completely took advantage of that delectable shoe!
Now on to the good stuff:
For a casual outing, try these Converse slip ons.
Available at Nordstrom these chic casuals are perfect weekend wear. Comfortable and slip-on…and they won’t make your feet look too large as they have 4 lace holes as opposed to 6. And yes, one of us belles happens to be blessed with double-digit-size feet.
Next up for a casual dinner, cocktails at the corner pub, or a little dash of city chic these animal print pumps are from J. Crew and they are 30% off!!
So take a walk on the wild side…sport an animal print shoe.
Our third look is a classic. Errands, lengthy promenades, lunch with the ladies, traveling and touring…a ballet flat is always a great go to option. These are older Tory Burch ones. They wear like iron and really are a value in the price-per-wear department.
Nordstrom has these on sale and we are awfully partial to these beauties.
Last, but certainly not least, is a shoe that is another spring trend: the kitten heel. Finally a shoe that can be worn all day, dressed up or down, and still remain feminine.
The ones in the photo are by Vince Camuto and are available online.
So, there you have it belles… And by the way, we can talk a blue streak too!
